Sometimes, a quick hit to the menu button will get you going. But even for those seemingly unskippable previews, it turns out you don't have to sit through them at all and you can actually get the movie going before you finish your beer if you know this simple trick: Stop, stop, play.
"Stop, stop, play" should get you to the movie on most DVD players. But if you're still having trouble, try two other remote button combinations from Digital Inspiration: Stop, stop, stop, play (three times!) or do a few rounds of "Stop, play" to skip through the previews and the landing pages one-by-one:
When the first splash screen appeared, I clicked the player’s Stop button. Then I clicked Play, and the disc skipped ahead to the previews. I repeated the process — Stop, then Play — and it advanced to the FBI warning. I did it a third time and presto: I landed right on the movie’s menu screen.
